Their younger members do the killing. They’ve got more to prove after all. Non-affiliateds left behind and brave enough to venture out for supplies or food leave behind spray-painted warnings for the next group to venture out. “MAKE WAY FOR DUCKLINGS.”
The boardwalk’s littered with the bodies of those who didn’t heed the warnings.
